I hope you're doing well. I'm fairly new to PHP development and I've recently been working on securing my PHP installations to prevent any potential security vulnerabilities. I'd like to seek your expertise and see if you could provide some guidance on the best practices for ensuring the security of PHP installations.
I understand that PHP, being a widely used web programming language, can be a target for malicious attacks or vulnerabilities if not properly secured. With that in mind, I want to make sure I'm taking proactive steps to protect my PHP applications and the data they handle.
So, could you please share any advice or best practices you may have for securing PHP installations? Are there any specific configuration settings, libraries, or security measures that you recommend implementing? Additionally, are there any common security vulnerabilities in PHP that I should be aware of and guard against?
Thank you in advance for your input. I'm eager to learn from your experiences and expertise in order to enhance the security of my PHP installations.
